What is BOTOX?
To help you age gracefully and to avoid facial wrinkles and lines from occurring on the top portion of the face, Setty Plastics & Aesthetics is pleased to offer BOTOX injections. This injectable treatment offers outstanding results and is very common among both women and men. BOTOX can make a significant improvement to dynamic lines, which are made from expressive movement with the contracting muscles on the forehead and around the eyes. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic folds can still remain. This muscle relaxer is a clean and purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these static wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected to smooth the skin right in our offices in McKinney, and Dallas, TX. Treatments are commonly administered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Naveen Setty between the eyebrows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and across the forehead.
What Are the Benefits of BOTOX?
Fine lines and facial folds can distract from our other attributes, as well as make us seem older than we really are. BOTOX is a trusted choice for helping you achieve a younger, smooth look. While the results are not permanent, you will enjoy the benefits for several months before needing to have a follow-up treatment. Patients may also get additional benefits from BOTOX at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics, including:
- Minimal pain: BOTOX injections utilize a very small needle, so the treatments seem like a minor poke in the skin.
- No rest or recovery: Because of its minimally invasive qualities, you can be free to resume your normal life following appointments.
- Brief procedures: The BOTOX procedures often lasts as little as 10 minutes.
- Simple maintenance: Individuals who desire to maintain their outcomes for a while will notice that follow-up appointments are quick and realistic for everyday activities.
Who is a Candidate for botox?
BOTOX injections are great for softening visible dynamic lines and wrinkles on the upper face without surgery. Proactively, BOTOX can also be used as an anti-aging treatment even there are no signs of aging — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It's a terrific noninvasive treatment if you are frustrated by forehead wrinkles or parallel lines between the brows. It is also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. In addition, if you are over the age of 50 with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for a facelift surgery. This delivers a more impactful result and it is longer lasting. Setty Plastics & Aesthetics offers eyelid surgeries, facelifts, and brow lifts as effective options.

how does botox work?
BOTOX treatments are completed as an in-office procedure conveniently at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics. If it is your first time to visit our office to get BOTOX, we usually perform the treatment on the same day as your initial consultation with Dr. Setty. You will be asked to make a number of expressions with your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us see where the injections need to be placed. Your face will be prepared and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed with gentle compressions to help prevent bruising and discomfort. You can ask for an ice pack or numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually is unnecessary. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, then you may resume your usual routine.
What can i Expect after botox?
Following the injections, you may get back to your normal routine, although strenuous activity should be skipped for a minimum of one day. You will be advised to sleep with your head elevated for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of your face can appear red, swollen, or bruised for 2 – 3 days, although you should not develop any serious or lasting side effects from injectable treatments. In many cases, it generally takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX can be seen. The medication usually last 3 – 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about when to make your next appointment at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics to extend your results.
How many BOTOX units/injections will I likely need?
The amount of BOTOX needed will vary according to individual goals and the depth and severity of your facial lines and wrinkles. Dr. Setty can suggest the appropriate quantity of BOTOX units based on your cosmetic goals and whether you wish to treat the Crow's feet, brow area, or forehead. To keep up with your cosmetic outcomes, our experts could recommend receiving BOTOX injections every few months at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics.
Can BOTOX be paired with additional nonsurgical treatments?
BOTOX treatment typically pairs well with other aesthetic solutions at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics for men and women who wish to reduce signs of aging. If you notice more pronounced and extensive facial wrinkles and creases, our professionals could suggest incorporating a dermal filler to help you achieve your smoothest results. To further improve a younger-looking glow, Dr. Setty might perform additional complementary treatments, like facials or microneedling.
Are there comparable aesthetic injections?
BOTOX is a specific type of wrinkle reducer that exists within a market of other comparable options, like Dysport®. Other wrinkle relaxer solutions are made from type A botulinum toxin; however, each one is created a little differently to address particular challenges.
What's the variation among fillers and wrinkle reducers?
Even though wrinkle reducers, like BOTOX, are utilized to smooth fine lines by temporarily freezing your muscle movements,dermal fillers are a distinct category of aesthetic options that add volume in the face. Fillers are designed to volumize gaunt-looking features and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. Setty can discuss whether you would benefit from adermal filler (such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) to further enhance your BOTOX results.
How soon can I see results?
Most patients notice an improvement within 3 to 7 days following the treatment. However, it may take up to two weeks for the full effects to become visible.
How long do the effects of BOTOX last?
Typically, the effects of BOTOX last between 3 to 6 months. However, the duration can vary from person to person. We recommend regular follow-up treatments at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics to maintain your desired look.
